  1. Just like watch dogs this is really badly optimised on PC. It never seems to use 100 percent of the GPU power, always hovering around 94 percent. Also just like watch dogs it's quite easy to hit 4k 30 with very high settings but even dropping the settings makes it very hard to hit 60fps. Ironically if ubisoft hadn't got money hatted by AMD for this game then DLSS could have been used and it would have been much better.
  2. They are good neighbours and she recently had a massive heart attack and died 3 times. It's likely a present for someone and we do allow certain neighbours to deliver to our house because we are in a lot. Our dogs fault for being a nutter when it comes to the post.
  3. Well this has cost me some money. Seems a neighbour of mine order the limited edition of this for the PS5 from amazon and wanted it delivered to my address (this might be surprise for someone in their house or something). Trouble was the postman just threw it onto the floor in my porch and not through the letter box like a sensible person. This resulted in the dog getting hold of it and cracking the case on the game and biting it up a treat. While the game disc seems fine I have now had to fork out 55 quid for a replacement. Fuck sake. I might sell the disc of the game on though.
  4. While this isn't so much of an eve war related update it does show that sometimes, amongst all the hurfing and blurfing and the bitterness, that we can come together for a good cause. Last night the following ping was sent out by a goon member to other goons. "My friend is doing a 24 hour stream, she's on like hour 16, she's doing it to raise money for the Childrens Miracle Network Hospitals. She hasn't had more than 10 viewers at once so far today, and I thought if we could send out a ping to just hop on her stream for even a moment, it would brighten her 24 hours. I'm not asking anyone to donate any money, just to pop in and say hi. She's incredibly introverted and generally hates people but I think she'd get a laugh out of a bunch of poeple busting in at once to say hello." "She has 7 viewers right now, you know what to do goonie goons" What followed was pretty damn cool. "I logged on to stream after arriving home, at a number of 320 users watching. This was amazing. After many minutes of watching donations climb, $10 here $20 there, $100 from myself and a few others, a chad from NC. dropped supers on our donations to the tune of $500. What a fucking Chad. After many many requests, the streamer played, the battle song of goons. Little bees." But it didn't stop there. "After this ping, viewer count went to well over 450 At the time of this post, the donations totaled $3,109 i love this fucking community" Her stream now stands at 5000 dollars. She only want to raise 500. Good guys from all sides do good things.
  5. It's wierd because it can look really, really nice with RTX on etc but then it can also look really bloody ugly in parts as well.
  6. Suggestion going around that the game maybe a bit fucked with 3000 series cards. Even on my 2000 series though there were some belting graphical bugs when talking with people as they appeared to have massive amounts of depth of field applied to them or were covered in some sort of wierd hazy ball. Good job Ubisoft. Another quality product.
  7. Well so far performance is actually not to bad. My 2070 plays this at around 45-60fps with ray tracing on high and DLSS on balanced. I am playing it at 3440x1440 as well so if I knocked it down to 1440p then I could probably hit 50-60 at all times.
  8. That's actually very good of them. I think we could see more cloud based games coming to switch if the tech does hold up.
  9. You can actually give control a try before you buy. Very curious to see how it runs.
  10. Apparently this has bricked some reviewers machines. It's also reported that the game would just randomly crash pc's when using ray tracing. Personally I'm going to join the ubi club thing for a month and then just tell it to get fucked.
  11. One major problem with resetera is that people there try to "out holy" each other. The constant screaming at one another saying "This offends me!" followed by "This offends me even more!" and if someone isn't quite as offended then they get dog piled and told that they should be more offended. It's like an ideological purity test.
  12. Keepstar number five fight started and end quickly. The enemy has figured out a way of stopping us using our ravens to kill the keeps. They simply dropped over 150 bubbles on the grid around the keep and that stopped us warping in. Clever but we can just do the same to them when they have to try and attack us.
  13. Seems like we will be hitting it. God alive. Time to lose another load of ships. By what the hell. Sundays are boring anyway.
  14. Keepstar number 5 has now been anchoured and comes out tomorrow evening. Rumours say we may actually let this one come online and not try and kill it. Will we? Won't we? I have no idea. There are some advanatges for us to actually let them online a keep. Firstly it shift us from attacking them to defending our own and we have an awful lot of them in Delve. Defending a keep can be very bloody for the attackers (as we have found out) and there are three timers to kill an online keep, not the one when it's coming online. The enemy would have to chew through 130 timers if they wish to drive us out of our space. The cost to them would be enourmous. Still we shall see.
  15. It died at 4 o'clock this morning. Another successful defence of the motherland. We did start running low on ships at some points but the fires of Delve started belching out smoke and ships were produced to replace those lost. I personally lost 3 battleships and a bomber but hey we get the cost of them back so who cares.
  16. 50 percent down but we are struggling with ship replacement.
  17. So far the keep is down to about 80 percent and the fight has been going about an hour. Pretty much as we expect so far but the enemy have altered their tactics slightly and are using small ships to try and damp our ships down so they cannot fire at the keep at range.
  18. And it's on! Keepstar number four is being fought over. Will it die?
  19. Ah well...we let them anchour it so that it comes out for repair in 24 hours time. This means another 12 to 14 hour slugfest to try and kill it. Good thing it's a friday evening for it though and it's euro prime time for us.
  20. As an addeundum to this Keepstar number 4 has been dropped in our space and tomorrow a ten hour slug fest will start to see if we can kill another. Your glorious front line reporter will be there...god help me.
  21. The best laid plans... Last night, while yours truely was tucked up in bed and fast asleep, something happened in EVE online. Nothing unusual there of course. Something is always happening. However, this something was not just some random off the cuff fight or a citdel being dropped. No. This something was planned for months in advance and had been carefully planned and worked out to perfection. It was, quite frankly, a brilliant plan. Other the past few months FC's in the imperium and in particular Asher (one of the main goon FC's and pretty damn good) had been observing enemy fleet movements and how they did certain things. During these observations they noticed a pattern to the way the enemy worked and in particular how the moved around their Super Capital fleets. This gave them an idea. You see the enemy had a tendancy to do something. Whenever they cyno'd in their supercapital fleets into a system they would bring them all in right on top of each other. They would open mulitple cyno's in very close proximity and the fleets would jump and be in a nice big ball. Now we do not this at all. When we cyno in fleets we make sure they are spread out and there is a good reason for this. Titans. Your normal common garden varity titan comes equipped with a doomsday Area of effect weapon. This sucks up energy from nearby ships and then causes a huge amount of damage upon hitting it's target and the surrounding area. So having a bunch of ships all together in a single spot is just an invite for a titan to doomsday and awful lot of them at once. It's why we don't bunch them valuable ships together. The fear of the Titan doomsday. This is called a Boson weapon or BFG. So we noticed a flaw in how the enemy operated. Now a tactic to kill them needed to be tested. Over hundreds of man hours a variety of tests were carried out on EVE onlines test server. What was being tested was an attempt to see how many titans it would take to wipe out an entire enemy super capital fleet in one stroke. 10 caused moderate damage, 15 would kill a few weaker ships but 20 would kill the lot except the most tanky of ships. So it was decided that 20 was the sweat spot. The titans would almost certainly be killed up superior enemy force numbers after they had pulled their trick but if it worked then the trade was more than worth it. In order to pull the trick off though a number of things needed to be put into action. Firstly you needed to choose a system where to pull this off. Then you had to have small ships called intercepters at preprepared ranges on a certain spot and be able to sneak titans into the system. Thirdly this whole thing needed to be carried out in total secrecy. Thnakfully the first part was provided by the enemy. They had attacked a Citadel in a system called YZ9 and there was a timer on the board. So our lot knew when and were the enemy were going to be. For a day or so before the timer came out Asher and his team gradually sneaked in 20 titans when the system was empty. They were dropped in one at a time so as to not arouse suspicion. Intercepters then buzzed around to find the best spots with which to attack the enemy fleet. The Valhalla ride. So the plan seemed to be doable. The tests had borne that out. The place and time was set. All that was needed was to make sure the enemy showed up in their super fleet and prey to god that everything would go as planned. The fight starts over the Citadel and our side slowly but surely start to escalated the fight from sub caps to main caps and the enemy take the bait. They drop their super capital fleet in just the same way as they had done previously. A big ball bunched together and even better without any bubbles to stop ships warping close to them. It was time to drop the hammer. As this was going on the fight was bogged down with incredibly bad Tidi. It was laggy as hell and server calls were sometimes not getting through. The Titans log in and warp to their assigned intercepters. When I say warp what I actually mean was spent an age very slowly arriving on the grid. For those Titan pilots it must have seemed like eternity. But it works. They get on grid. The enemy is there. They are there and it's time to fire. The weapons spool up and reports start coming in of them hitting their targets. Then the reports stop. Something has gone very, very wrong. Normally a boson weapon would cycle through a number of damage hits, about twenty in the tests, but this time they only worked about 2 or 3 times. The enemy fleet was hurt a bit but the 20 titans were screwed. The plan had failed and not because it was a failure of planning or execution but rather a failure of the eve server. It had failed to register the right amount of hits. And the kicker to this failure of technology? Bosons had worked perfectly well before in big fleet fights. It was just this time that they did not. The 20 titan pilots, who new that this fight would be a "Valhalla Ride" for their ships, had to watch as their ships slowly died over the next few hours. By the end of the fight nearly 3.2 trillion isk had been lost and a big victory for the enemy had been won. However there are sometimes certain things in eve that occur that people actually agree on. This is one of them. Ashers plan was clever and would have worked. The enemy even admit this. Indeed when The plan actually started unfolding during the fight Asher was contacted by FC's on the other side who were in awe of what was happening. Everyone also agrees that this was a failure on the part of CCP and their servers. This was supposed to be a reinforced node and it had coped well with 6000 people fighting in a system before so why not a few thousand less? People on both sides are agree with them. Then again I was asleep though and to wake up to such a story of eve madness is always a nice thing.
  22. Your more likely to remember it from Record breakers!
  23. That and eye in the sky straight after it are just...chefs kiss. In fact the alan parsons project is full stop.
  24. They dropped another keepstar. It died. That's number three now. If the enemy think they can drain us of money and supplies then they are very much mistaken. Goons industrial base is immense as is their wallet.
  25. It is the best pikmin game. Also best fruit in any video game ever.
